  • Thanks to Frankie Telfort and Old Bull Athletics I have been able to reduce my knee pain when I am weight training. He not only gave me some key stretches to do daily, but also helped fix my form on my compound movements such as the squats. He was able to explain why I was experiencing pain which allowed me to better understand what I needed to fix. This has been helpful because now when I record myself I can see what I did well and what I need to work on. Thank you so much for not only correcting my mistakes, but allowing me to learn about them ad improve them myself. Can't wait to gt back to it! =]


    I’ve never had physical or personal training, so I didn’t know what to expect when I came here for the first time. I can now say that I’m hooked! I think it’s the best decision I’ve made this year! They are super knowledgeable, patient, and kind but they still push you to see you improve. They explain everything they’re doing and why they’re doing it. I’ve just gone to 5 sessions, and I already see a difference in my body and my back pain. 100% recommend!


    By far hands down one of the best Strength training and student athlete development program in all South Florida. As a collegiate athlete and youth football coach. I can tell how experienced and knowledgeable the staff is. Juwanza in particular has far exceeded my expectations and it is showing in the performance and progress of my son. I highly highly recommend.

  • Really impressed by Old Bull athletics. For anyone looking for personal training, Frankie is knowledgeable, observant, and really listens to the client. It reminded me of personal training and physical therapy mixed--where the ownership really understands the mechanics behind your movements. It's a place that truly tailors to your level, targets your goals, and makes everyone feel comfortable.

    Love this gym! It’s like a little family. Whenever I am there, the trainers are super friendly and the people who workout there are so nice. I started going because I needed my shoulder worked on after an injury. Frankie is doing a great job helping me heal my shoulder... in just a few week I feel stronger and my shoulder is in so much less pain. I am so grateful for this gym. 😁

    I haven't been going to Old Bull Athletics for long, but it has been a great experience so far! Coach Jay has been great! They know what they're doing, and have the specific certifications/qualifications I was looking for. I am far from an athlete, but they have made me feel very welcomed and accepted, and I feel like I have already learned a lot! Definitely recommend.

    Had lower back pain for years. Took some months but happy to say my lower back problems have disappeared. All while working toward my main fitness goals.Frankie and Monica are excellent trainers. So is the rest of the staff. Great atmosphere and be ready to bring your A game because they will push you!


    These guys are on another level when it comes to exercise instruction and performance training. Before working with Frankie, Monica, and Jawanza I thought I knew how to do resistance training exercises correctly, but I was definitely missing some key stuff. After learning key pieces to those movements, I feel a lot more confident and have been able to increase my weights significantly, especially with kettlebell swings, Turkish Getup, and Deadlift!!
